Belgaum District Kurbura Sangha’s office-bearers, including working president S.F. Pujer and taluk unit president Yallappa Kurbar, have criticised those levelling “baseless” allegations against senior Congress leader Siddaramaiah.

They told presspersons here on Friday that some political leaders were creating confusion among Kuruba community people by spreading rumours about Mr. Siddaramaiah. They appealed to the community members that time was ripe for Mr. Siddaramaiah, who belongs to the community, to become Chief Minister and all of them should support him.
